BITS Of SPORT
Joe Tinker isin about the same
position as the man who climbs a'
ladder and then has it yanked
from under him.
Joe, believing he would be
made manager of the Reds, de
clared he no longer wanted to
play with the Cubs. He said that
if he made errors fans would de
clare he was jealous of Evers and
was trying to throw him down.
Evers immediately climbed up
on his left ear and proceeded to
orate. He flatly refuses to con
sider Mitchell? and Grant in ex
change for Tinker, entirely over
looking the fact that none, of the
Red players' will be retained here
anyhow, but must be shunted on
to Philadelphia if Evers is to
make gdod his bluff and refuse to
let go of Tinker unless. Mike
Doolan is secured. And- the Phil
lies are perfectly willing to take
Grant and a pitcher in .exchange
Jim Archer, and Sheckard are
the only players leftinGliicago.
Sheck is probably waiting'-around
.to see whether he isjto' be sent to
Brooklyn. According to the
Brooklyn Eagle, fans in the city
at the wrong endxf the bridge are
not strong for Sheckard, and are
willing'to root for Dahlen for an
other year, as he has at last got-
ten together gang of youngsters
that look promising.
Mordecai Brown is another
Cub (or ex-Cub) who doesn't
know where he'll hang his hat
next yean Brownie, according to
Murphy, was sold to Louisville,
where rumor had him picked as
manasrer. Gravson of the Col
onels, however, knew little of the
transaction when he talked to the
great pitcher her,e, and. now the
miner claims he hasn t been sola,
but is still the property of the
Cubs. Henow has an opportun
ity to become part owner and
manager' of Terre Haute of the
Central League, where he started
his baseball career.
This being Hallowe'en, why
don't Cub fans carry, off Murphy's-
grandstand and force Wm
to build new one?
